The second of my Notelet Set


Good Monday Morning Ladies, 

Well that was that, time to tidy the craft desk and for me personally I am going to flick through my 'not yet used' baskets and have a play! 

I will put a clause in here if the blog appears more 'befuddled' than normal I was watching Mr Darcy jump in the pond at Pemberly (Pride & Prejudice) and added to that distraction Sonia was teasing me with a Sale at 'Dies to Die For'!! How was a girl to concentrate??! 

Thankfully I felt a little better for the first time in more than a month yesterday,  we didn't do very much, we had a delicious Roast Beef dinner which I was actually able to enjoy, we continued with our jigsaw puzzle, although ours doesn't sound anywhere near as delicious to look at as yours Lilian!  

Today's card is another of my 'Trio of Notelets ' made using the beautiful 'Awash with Beauty ' Dsp, an absolutely stunning floral paper collection,  this particular spray of flowers I paired with a Blackberry Bliss mat, then onto an embossed layer and lastly onto a small square card blank, I finished this, like the others with a small sentiment and 3 tiny diamanté. 

I hope that you all enjoy the last day of the holidays! 

Love and hugs to all of you, 

Sandra                                                                                xxxxxx 


  1. Hi everyone
    I love your pretty card today. Those papers are stunning 😍
    Glad to hear you’re feeling better, fingers crossed you’re on the mend xx My covid test revealed a very, very faint line - I can only see it with my glasses on 🤓 - so I’m taking that as my first negative 🤞
    Sorry to tease you with the sale 😉 I hope you found some bargains whilst watching Mr Darcy. In2Craft have announced their sale this morning with upto 75% off! I had a quick look and there are some real bargains on there, but I’ve already spent enough so I’m being good and not buying anything else.
    Have a lovely day everyone
    Sending hugs to you all xxx

  2. Another very pretty notelet and agree those papers are gorgeous
    So pleased you’re beginning to feel better I hope it continues
    I will go and take a look at the bargains but I have so much unused stuff I really shouldn’t be looking!
    I am continuing last year’s resolution and throw something away every day E.g I threw away/donated a couple of tops that do not fit me - why keep them thinking I’ll slim down when you know that you really won’t!
    Take care everyone xx

  3. Hi everyone
    Pretty notelet Sandra. Hoping you getting better for each day and nothing worth comes of it.
    Janet, hope you alright and Jim is getting better too. Take care.
    Sonia, good to hear the line is getting weaker. You rest up until you are back to normal.
    Well wishes to anyone who are not too good today.
    Have not got into the craft room yet. Body aching , mojo gone and day's are muddled up, we had Tuesday here until now when I popped in to the cafe' for something warm and tasty. It's cold outside.
    Have a good day everyone. Many hugs xxx

  4. Hello all, lovely sunny day, a bit on the chilly side. Spent the afternoon out side sorting out the trays and pots ready for spring, threw out all the cracked plastic ones while R wasn’t looking.

    Love your note card, that paper is delightful, can understand why your giving up on Stamping up. Having to meet a target each month, means you probably have lots of new things already.

    Haven’t done much else today apart from starting my jigsaw.

    Sending hugs to all, Lilian

  5. Hi Sandra and all looking in today. Another pretty card using that lovely paper. I like the embossed border, I want to use embossing folders and powders much more this year. I wonder if I will remember?😁
    I am so glad that you felt better yesterday. My fingers are crossed that you continue to feel that way my lovely xx
    Sonia, it’s so good to hear that you are almost ready for work xx
    A quietish day here. Will be playing Monopoly with Gem shortly. I am on winning streak at the moment, won the last 8 games. Not that it is important for either me or Gem to win, we just enjoy playing. I’m definitely getting the urge to craft but have to clear my desk off first! I hope you all have a nice warm evening and a good nights sleep. Sending hugs and Take care xx

  6. Hello Sandra and ladies,
    What a pretty card Sandra, these papers are really beautiful and so inspiring for a quick card.
    Like you, I love all of the Stampinup products and always want all of them but have to hold back as my wish list would definitely break the bank!
    Pleased you are able to move a little more comfortably, just take care and go forward one day at a time, don’t go putting any pressure on yourself xxx
    Take care everyone, hugs Brenda xxx
